I just started on ball #4 yesterday during Monday Night Football. I have to knit stockinette till I get 80% into ball # 5 and then I start on the lace edging. It is the perfect knitting for this trip as it requires absolutely no brain power at all.
Yes, I know. b.o.r.i.n.g. But you can't feel the lovely hand and the warmth of the shawl in my lap. It will be very wearable when it is done.
